Have you ever experienced a time in your life when things seemed to be going right, and then trauma hit? We’ve probably all experienced rough patches from time to time. Our guest this week, Amberly Lago dives into her journey through a horrific motorcycle accident which resulted in 34 surgeries and a coma which would forever change her life.
Amberly discusses how she experienced an intense amount of pain and recovery time from her accident but also how she was able to build her resilience and overcome depression, pain, and anger that would result from her injuries. She believes that resilience is something we can build and become stronger in, much like training a muscle, and she incorporates this into recovery from a crisis. She talks about how now she is stronger because of what happens and how it has led to new opportunity.
